Juxtaposed elements

Syndee Holt makes pendants with an architectural air on PolymerClayDaily.com

These crisply cut pendants start our week out on the right foot. They’re from California’s Syndee Holt on Instagram.

She decorates ovals, cuts them in half, and shifts them slightly up and down on a black bar to make pendants with an architectural air.

This makes us feel under control which is a good way to begin a Monday.

Clipped wings, new outlets

Jana Roberts Benzon moves to online sales with new designs on PolymerClayDaily.com

Utah’s Jana Roberts Benzon’s latest new pins/pendants show off her wing-like dimensional, veneer-covered collages.

She’s about to offer her work on Etsy in a few weeks after years of resisting online sales. She’also promises to beef up her Instagram. It may be the grandbabies who are compelling her to stick closer to home.

While we wait for Etsy to launch her, enjoy Jana’s works on Facebook and her website.

Tempted by tribal

Tribal echoes resonate with Dani Kirova on PolymerClayDaily.com

UK’s Dani Kirova (temptedbyartjewelry) has been feeling tribal with a series of masks and images.

You’ll find shield shapes, geometric ethnic caned patterns and echoes of Africa in her works on Instagram. Whether she’s carving or caning, these images are strongly imprinted on her spirit.

They jump out from her other works. Instagram’s presentation of many pieces at a glance give you a quick overview of work and allow themes to emerge.

 

When you need to feel safe

Sometimes a neat, tidy, geometric polymer pendant hits the spot.

Spain’s Zazu Polymer Clay Jewelry convinces us that everything is under control when the news and the weather tell us anything but that.

If you need safety and predictability, see how Murcia Aranzazu (Zazu) creates sleek, bright, controlled jewelry on her website, Facebook and Instagram. Her Pinterest page lets you roam around in her inspirations.

Life lessons in polymer

Seana Bettencourt welcomes May with a new attitude on PolymerClayDaily.com

Ontario’s Seana Bettencourt has come through some health concerns and it looks like her creativity has been pumped into high gear.

These pendants (and more on FB) were made at a spring guild conference. Seana has taken bits of techniques she’s recently learned, mixed them with hard-won life lessons to make her own distinctive and stunning pendants that let her own spirit shine through. Exciting when that happens to us.
